Accessible Web Development and Design

Accessible Web Development and Design

Web accessibility should be the new normal, and the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) is meant to establish equality within the IT sphere. ADA web compliance helps people access websites easier, no matter their physical or cognitive abilities.

Consider building a fully compliant site or eCommerce solution? PixelPlex is here to offer a complete package of accessible web development and design. We’ll help your business stay strictly legal and competitive while unleashing the new growth potential.

ADA web compliance is a key to business growth

Legal protection

By settling things down with web accessibility, you make a monumental investment in an unwrecked reputation. This pays off times as much as lawsuit settlement costs, so it’s good to demonstrate your respect to legal requirements anyway.

Multi-browser support

In line with web accessibility standards, you can enable your website to support all major browsers. This way, you’ll show extra care about the disabled or elderly people who can’t regularly update legacy software or switch between platforms and browsers.

Better market reach

On its own, making your website convenient and comprehensible for each and every one translates into a consistent traffic rise. Add personalized user support to this, and you’ll see a quality shift in client satisfaction, along with revenue and customer base growth.

Streamlined website maintenance

ADA web compliance means your code should be clean and properly tested manually, via screen readers, and with automated tools. Thus, upon the deployment stage you get bug-free software. To streamline your page maintenance, you’ll be able to automate code checking throughout the continuous integration and delivery processes.
